Nightmares on Lincoln Ave. Too—Totally Tubular Tales of Terror Recommended The Short List (Theater)

When: Wednesdays-Saturdays. Continues through Oct. 30 2010

Corn Productions hangs ten on the rising wave of 1990s nostalgia with this smart, silly, very funny parody of Are You Afraid of the Dark?, the spooky Clinton-era television show for kids. As members of the Up Past Bedtime Brigade--the sort of cross-clique teen mix found only on children's TV--Corn's expert adult ensemble performs a rapid-fire series of sketches that explore the turbulence of adolescence and the most embarrassing aspects of fin de siecle youth culture. Phrases like "no dip!" and "dotcom" as a suffix for everything took me back to middle school. The meticulous costume design is perhaps the show's scariest element: seemingly every awful piece of 90s fashion has been resurrected to walk among the living once more. --Keith Griffith

Price: $7-$15
